AFI PROJECT: 20/20

Marking its fourth year, AFI PROJECT: 20/20 is an American Film Institute international initiative designed to enhance cultural exchange and understanding, by bringing together filmmakers and their films from the US and abroad.


AFI PROJECT: 20/20 represents an unprecedented cultural diplomacy effort that is supported by the U.S.'s cultural agencies--the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)-- and the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities in concert with U.S. Embassies and domestic presenting institutions. AFI FEST and the other venues and countries participating in AFI PROJECT: 20/20 provide an arena for American and International cultural voices to be heard and seen, creating learning opportunities for audiences and artists alike.

The U.S. and international filmmakers invited to participate in AFI PROJECT: 20/20 are unique. Their films often explore themes and stories not usually told by commercial films and by participating in discussions, workshops and other activities around their films, the filmmakers are cultural ambassadors that bring other perspectives on America to foreign audiences and vice versa. Movies allow 20/20 to fulfill its purpose of engaging audiences beyond language and borders, to reveal both a respect for differences and a shared humanity among cultures.

Bob Richardson
AHEAD OF TIME

Born in Brooklyn in 1911, Ruth Gruber became the youngest PhD in the world before going on to become an international foreign correspondent and photojournalist at age 24. She emerged as the eyes and conscience of the world. With her love of adventure, fearlessness and powerful intellect, Ruth defied tradition in an extraordinary career that has spanned more than seven decades.

Jessica Oreck (USA/Japan)
BEETLE QUEEN CONQUERS TOKYO

Far more fascinating than any entomology lesson, American filmmaker Jessica Oreck's debut captures the essence of a centuries-old Japanese subculture that has an acute enthusiasm for insects. Her unconventional approach to science education is never dull, unearthing a surprising national love affair with bugs.

Melissa de Raaf, Răzvan Rădulescu (Romania/France/Belgium/Croatia)
FIRST OF ALL, FELICIA

In a collaboration unique in Romania's burgeoning cinema, Răzvan Rădulescu (from Romania) and Melissa de Raaf (from the Netherlands) have co-written and directed a simple yet rich story confined to a single day. It dawns for Felicia (Ozana Oancea) with expectations that her sister will drive her to the Bucharest airport for her flight to Amsterdam, where Felicia has lived with her husband and son for years.

Damien Chazelle (USA)
GUY AND MADELINE ON A PARK BENCH

Imagine Jacques Demy as seen through an urban, jazz-infused American indie filter and you'll get a sense of writer-director Damien Chazelle's startling debut endeavor. The electrifying GUY AND MADELINE takes the musical genre to a contemporary new level, telling the story of the title characters' soured relationship in song and dance.

Lars Larson, Michael Rivoira, Peter J. Vogt (USA)
ICONS AMONG US

By combining rare archival stills, interviews with 75 jazz artists and live recordings culled from 25 hours of concerts, ICONS AMONG US is a dynamic and engaging document of many of the greatest jazz musicians of today. It contains interviews and performances from the likes of Herbie Hancock, Terence Blanchard, Ravi Coltrane, Medeski Martin and Wood, the Bad Plus and many others.

Rachid Bouchareb (Algeria/UK/France)
LONDON RIVER

On July 7, 2005, four Muslim assassins, traveling on London's public transport during morning rush hour, activate a series of bombs. They kill 56 people and injure many others on three underground trains and one double-decker bus.

Andrey Khrzhanovsky (Russia)
ROOM AND A HALF

Andrei Khrzanovsky's bittersweet, endlessly imaginative film begins with the revered poet Joseph Brodsky (Grigory Dityatkovsky, bearing an uncanny resemblance to the Nobel Prize-winning poet) approaching his beloved St. Petersburg after a decades-long exile imposed by the Soviet state. In a Proustian wave of memories, his past comes to life, centered around the tiny but welcoming flat he shared with his devoted parents.

Nina Paley (USA)
SITA SINGS THE BLUES

Wired magazine called Nina Paley "the one-woman Pixar." That's because, in this animated landmark, she built an entire feature film herself, from her home office, using standard-issue computers and over-the-counter software. But more than mere historical footnote, SITA is a magical film that weaves together two stories: of Sita, a goddess separated from her beloved lord and husband, Rama, and Nina, an animator whose husband moves to India and then dumps her by e-mail.

AFI PROJECT: 20/20 Mentors 2009

Kief Davidson (USA)
KASSIM THE DREAM

Kidnapped at age 6 and turned into a child solder--both a victim and perpetrator of war crimes -- Kassim "The Dream" Ouma has dreams of becoming a world champion boxer. His startling tale of survival and success is real-life proof that humans, against the longest odds, can turn tragedy into inspiration.

Richie Mehta (Canada)
AMAL

In chaotic New Delhi, an aged and irascible man cheats everyone he meets. When Amal, an auto-rickshaw wallah, generously allows him to dodge his fare, both are affected in a way that has far-reaching consequences.
